Dennis responds, optimistically: "Yes, to a $100 million company..Lindo leaves us in the position to greatly expand our capabilities in the government contracting space, and truly help our clients bolster their cybersecurity capabilities and properly protect their systems from the highly sophisticated and rapidly evolving threat landscape."
